I love Saturdays like today. It is suchh a beautiful, sunny day here.
I thought i’d start this out by catching you all up on my eats!
Thursday was the first day I started incorporating my ensure drinks.
Breakfast was my pretty standard yogurt mess with an ensure
to my surprise, the ensure was really pretty good. haha it tasted like a chocolate milkshake
after my 9:30 class I decided to stop at this little fruit stand that is on campus because I heard they had a sale on apples
I got 6 honeycrisps 🙂
Then, I went over to the boy’s place & I made him breakfast!!
I made him oats with cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter, heated up sliced apple, some honey sunshine, & cinnamon– he lOVED it!
Then I had my own lunch which was pretty typical & featured one of my new honeycrisps!!
For a snack I had a luna bar i had never tried before.. lemon zest!
it was good– not my favorite because it was maybe a tiny bit too sweet for me but i’d definitely eat it again.
For dinner I had broiled fish, scalloped potatoes, & a huggge salad!
They had chickpeas for the salad! yummm
Thursday night was really relaxed– I just went over to Gar’s and we made some jello shots for our party that was last night! It was fun… we ended up making like 170
They turned out perfectly!
Breakfast Friday morning was a yogurt mess but they were out of bananas so I had to improvise… I used some strawberries, pineapple, cantaloupe, & apple slices. I also had an ensure
Lunch went unpictured because it was very typical & i don’t want to bore you all!
Yesterday I worked out with Gar! I ran for 20 minutes & then did some chest & shoulders– we did 3 x 10 of bench press, incline press, shoulder press, and this other weird shoulder thing that we call ‘truck drivers’. Then we did abs! 20 crunches, 20 butterfly crunches, & 10 on a decline bench. It felt really great. I’m really proud of myself for doing more strength training
After workout snack featured my new heart thrives!!! I tried lemon poppyseed & omg it was amazing! I heated it up for 20 seconds and topped it with dark chocolate dreams
seriously- if you can find these… get them! I am going to try the chocolate ones soon & so i’ll let you all know what I think!
Last night’s dinner was a baked potato with salsa, a huge salad, & an apple from the cafeteria. I even put some cute little goldfish in my salad.
I got a large chocolate milk too because I forgot my ensure (oops) and I had to get over to Gar’s to get ready for the night!
Last night was so funn– lots of people showed up & people loooved the jello shots!
something kind of interesting happened last night. granted, it was semi influence by alcohol but nonetheless it affected me. so a couple girls from my floor who came to gar’s apartment went in his room & saw a picture of me and him from prom my junior year… this is it:
this is me at my old weight. The girls on my floor didn’t recognize me. They asked me who it was. I told them it was me and they were astonished. They then went on to say how beautiful I looked and how they think I should get back to this point. I had never been told so directly that I looked great before I lost weight by people I didn’t know very well. Sure, gar & my family and old friends tell me– but to hear it from new friends who didn’t know me before meant a lot.
No, I don’t think i’ll ever get back to that weight. I don’t want to give exact numbers I don’t think, but I just know that my ideal weight is now lower than that. Still, it makes it a lot easier for me to remind myself that I NEED to gain weight & that I will look BETTER if I gain some weight.
These girls helped me so much last night & I really owe them alot. I thanked them but it kind of made me realize they are people I want to be closer friends with 🙂
have any of you experienced little acts of kindness that have gone a longer way than people may realize?
I hope you all have fantastic weekends.. my night is probably going to be kind of boring but sometimes I don’t mind relaxing nights !
also- next weekend my family is visiting for parent’s weekend & i’m so excited!! I can’t wait to take my lil sista out :]
